Could be. But only way to tell now is do a test.

Delay of ovulation, is most likely the reason, delayed or absent ovulation will cause you to be late. Pregnancy sounds very unlikely. See your doctor for testing and treatment, to correct ovulation issues. A pregnancy test could be reassuring.

Pregnancy should not be associated with a fever. If you feel that your PCOS can be resolving, and you are having unprotected sex, you may be trying to become pregnant. PCOS is usually chronic, making your risk of pregnancy low. It may be difficult to guess menstrual cycles. Please use contraception and check with a pregnancy test 7 days after the expected period.
